Yesterday, just before I headed to BBC Radio Bristol for my interview, I had an unexpected phone call! It was my good friend Tony, who works for a company called IES (a leading, worldwide provider of specialist engineering and logistics services) and he had the companies Marketing Manager on the phone! I couldn’t believe it when she told me that they would like to sponsor me £500 for my Everest Marathon in aid of Off The Record! For once, I was speechless!
This extremely generous donation will now bring the current total raised for Off The Record to over £2000, not to mention what will be raised from my upcoming fundraising event!
I must say a massive thank you to Tony for arranging this for me! This amount of money will go such a long way to enabling OTR to provide the help and support needed to young people suffering from mental health problems in Bristol.
I hope some of you managed to catch me on the radio yesterday! Although I was nervous about sharing such personal things to a live audience, it felt liberating and I actually quite enjoyed it, in fact I wanted to say more and keep on talking!
